Motivation for this change

Contains navi14 firmware that is part of the amdgpu 20.10 release ( This is needed for the latest 5.6 kernel to support 5500XT/5600XT/5700XT. This firmware isn't currently in 2020-01-22, so when I use linuxPackages_latest on 20.03 I get the error psp v11.0: Failed to load firmware "amdgpu/navi14_ta.bin".

I guess this change needs to be backported to 20.03 as well to support 5.6?
